I wanted yarn that would stand up to the abuse that a bag goes through. I found it on Etsy. It is called Chunky Monkey, it is anti pilling, and it comes in all of Lucy’s colors. It does split at times but you just get used to it’s personality. It is tough but soft and perfect for bags. It is wonderful yarn and I plan to use it for this bag and many more. Fun to work with!

Hi there, I have a similar problem to the last comment. (June 11) Do you need to start decreasing at some point as my bag seems to be getting wider and not as cylindrical as yours?
Thank you.


Hi. There is something that i didn't understand. How is bag growing in v shape and not cylindrical after stopping to increase?


Love the bag and would like to subscribe to your blog but the link doesn't work for me. Can you add me?

Hi Maggie

I made this bag using an Aran weight yarn and a 4mm hook to keep the stitches nice and dense.

I used a pure wool, but any aran weight yarn would suit.

You will need approx. 400g in total.

Happy hooking!

Hi Lucy
I have just finished your Meadow blanket and love it. I would like to make this bag to keep my wool in but having looked at the yarn shop am unsure which to buy and how much. I would be grateful for any recommendations. Many thanks Maggie

My friend gave me the Jolly Bag pack for my birthday back in July. I love it!!
I love it so much, that I bought more yarn packs to make all my nieces jolly bags for Christmas this year.
I think they’ll love it as much as I will!

I am new to crochet and was recommended y
This site... It is I'm formative, fun, friendly and real. I love this bag but as I have little understanding especially about yarn types please can I ask can I use an acrylic aran rather than 100% wool, mainly due to cost and I may go wrong ALOT!! Also how much wool do you think I'd need? I'd estimate about 8 balls but I may be wrong? Thank you for the inspiration!!

This lovely bag caught my grandmothers eye when we were surfing the web for inspiration. I translated the pattern along with the flower pattern for her into icelandic, I wondered if you would like to add it to your ravelry post for other icelanders to enjoy?


Pour ceux et celles qui désirent les instructions en francais, faites comme moi. Un copier-coller dans Google Traduction et le tour est joué!!!
